Exploring Chicago’s Gold Coast
Stay at Thompson Chicago and you’re surrounded by lush, tree-lined streets and historic homes, a hair’s breadth from the action of the Magnificent Mile, the beauty of Oak Street beach, and some of the best restaurants in the world.
For a quintessential Chicago day, admire the architecture and soak up the sun on Oak Street beach. Walk the famed, mile-long stretch of Michigan Avenue and get some serious retail therapy. One of the great avenues in the world for dining, designer shopping, and entertainment, what makes the Magnificent Mile unique is the majestic architecture at every turn. Make it to the river and admire the iconic Van Buren Bridge. When you’re tired from all that, treat yourself to a deep dish at Lou Malnati’s (you earned it) and relax back at the hotel at our very own Salone Nico for one of our craft cocktails.
All this, a stone’s throw from our doors. That’s why we like to think we’re the perfect base for the perfect day in Chicago.
